The AH’s mom, my MIL and the kids beloved Nana passed away late Friday night. We were the last to see her Friday, leaving a mere 4 1/2 hours before her death. She did not look well at all and she was non-responsive. We whispered our love to her. I rubbed lotion on her once smooth hands. I noticed someone had been keeping her toenails painted. I assume it was her daughter. They were a pretty red.
It went too fast and was unexpected. She had been admitted a month earlier with a future and plans that filled it with a stubborn bought of pneumonia. Somehow, while in hospital she fell, went into cardiac arrest, aspirated vomit and ended up intubated, extubated, intubated again and then had a surgery for a tracheotomy and feeding tube. This all within 3 weeks.
She left this earth much too fast, with many things left undone. We all miss her terribly.
We will remember her fondly. We will miss her “bringing a party” as she used to say and do.
We will remember her always.
Goodbye Nana, we send you back into the earth with our love an admiration.
